I'm in a H2H keeper league, and I already have Ensberg and Cabrera at 3B. I'm looking to add some depth in case they falter. I'm considering Munson as his power and age is attractive to me since I'm in a keeper league. Also, Casey Blake is a possibility. Any idea what kind of numbers Munson will put up?

I think he is going to have his breakout year this year. I see 290 -35 -105. Not bad numbers. All three of these guys you named are great picks for a keeper league. I would still put my faith in Ensberg and Cabrera first.

I forgot to add that it's a 6x6 league, with OPS and Holds being the extra categories.

I'm not nearly as optimistic as Smithers, he hasn't been the same since he lost the aluminum bat.

I like Munson alot....I think something around .275 25-30Hr and 90 RBI is ot unreasonable.....In a deep keeper...I would like to have him on my team..... :-)

As a Tigers fan I have seen Munson play and I don't think he will bat .290 or get 105 rbi's. Even the 35 homers is a stretch, although I would love to see him reach these numbers realisticall his chances are slim.

I'd say something along the lines of:

.265 30 85

This is pretty acurate. There is no reason to think his ba will be above .275.

Still a good late rd sleeper in some leagues.
